Our global activities comprise of two core BU's:: Textile Processing Solutions producing a wide variety of textile processing chemicals and Chemical Solutions producing performance chemicals for various industrial applications.
During ITMA TANATEX presents its solutions to the world. We provide an innovative approach and offer the ultimate solution to your challenges.
FIBRE – PRECISION SPIN FINISHES
TANATEX has recently established the Fibre business line for the development and production of spin finishes for synthetic fibres. Seeing that we already deliver intermediates to several spin finish manufacturers, we now complete our Textile Processing Solutions with a forward integration to use these base products in the production of our own range of spin finish products. The resulting end products are developed by an experienced team of fibre and chemical experts who will cater for the needs of staple fibre and filament yarn manufacturers. Our first class chemical laboratories and production facilities have the most flexible, reliable and stable production installations available. We intend to expand our range of products to include those for most polymers and processes.
CRADLE to CRADLE: EPIC3
TANATEX has committed itself to the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) philosophy by implementing EPIC3: Extraordinary Programme for Innovative C2C Cellulosics Cycle. The purpose of the C2C Design is to restore continuous cycles of biological as well as technical nutrients with long terms positive effects on profitability, the environment and human health. TANATEX has chosen for a complete discontinuous bleaching, dyeing and finishing process of cellulosics: EPIC3. TANATEX is the only textile chemicals supplier with a complete C2C system approach. TANATEX believes that C2C is the next generation guiding principle as it is the only alternative for prolonged use of our scarce global raw materials.
TRIPLE CARPET PROTECTION
Our triple carpet protection concept offers stain & chlorine stain protection, dry soil removability and repellency of liquids. Spilling food and drinks which contain acid dyes often leave a mark on polyamide carpets. Stain blocker systems based on tannins were often applied to avoid the dyes from linking with the dye able groups of polyamide, but also provoked known negative side-effects. Using a totally different chemistry to block the dye able polyamide groups we were able to overcome the traditional known side-effects using our new product. We developed a special protection system that avoids white marks caused by occasional spills of bleach. This system is able to avoid colour changes of selected acid dyes till a concentration of 0,3% active chlorine. To allow more time to clean a possible liquid stain from the carpet, before it leaks through the pile into the backing, we offer our PFOA and PFOS free fluorocarbon products. Our product is a compound which also contains dry soil release properties to enhance the dust removability during cleaning. Good protection against liquids like water and oily stains is provided.
